19-year-old Connor Smith had a domestic dispute with his brother, Keith Smith, and his mother, Karen Burrum, while on the way home from McDonald’s on Nolensville Pike the night of December 17th. Officers arrived at their shared residence on Roxanne Drive, spoke with them, and were advised that Keith was driving Connor and Karen home when Connor asked to go to McDonald’s. An argument ensued between Keith and Conor as they left McDonald’s, and it escalated when Connor unbuckled his seatbelt, reached over the center compartment, and swung, hitting Keith while he was still driving. Keith pulled over to the side of the road, and Karen got out of the vehicle to break up the physical altercation by opening Connor’s door. Amid the action, Connor hit her in the face with his elbow, resulting in significant swelling and bruising. She eventually broke up the fight, and Connor exited the vehicle. All parties refused medical attention, and Connor was taken into custody for two counts of domestic assault.
